Crisis rocks Kogi APC as party expels state chairman, 38 others


The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday, announced the expulsion of its Kogi State Chairman, Haddi Ametuo, and 38 others from the party.

According to the ruling party, the members were axed following the allegation of gross misconduct and anti-party activities leveled against them.

The office of the National Vice-Chairman (North Central) of the party, Zakari Abdullahi Ede accused Ametuo and 38 others of working against the interest and progress of the party in Kogi State.

The list of the sacked executive officers also includes some local government officers of the party who were found guilty of working against the interest of the party.

The party had set up a fact-finding/investigative panel which looked into allegations against the affected party officers.

The party decided to uphold the report of the committee which recommended the removal of the affected officers.

The Kogi State chapter of the APC has been embroiled in crisis as some officers of the party were found to be openly working against the state government, particularly Governor Yahaya Bello.
